- Mardi Gras Film Festival 2020
“Refreshingly funny... deeply relatable” — Broadsheet
“Bundles humour, heart and history into a beautifully crafted narrative”
— Ange Hall, Curve Magazine
The first Australian film to open the Mardi Gras Film Festival, Ellie & Abbie (& Abbie’s Dead Aunt) is groundbreaking for a number of reasons!
Director Monica Zanetti was inspired to make the film because she wanted to create a romantic comedy like those she loved as a teen but never saw herself represented in, “I wanted to create a queer film that is funny, charming and above all else hopeful."
"A Rom-Com That’s All About Queer Joy” — Junkee
